  • Balloon inflation will take place as soon a winds are low enough to be safe.  Listen for announcements during the event.  Usually inflation happens at dusk but could be before.
  • Rain will not hinder the festival part of the event and the laser show.  It will hinder balloon inflation as balloon fabric obsorbs the rain.  If rain stops the balloons from setting up your tickets are good for another day or show.
